Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

5 Scopus citations


We consider the coherent cohomology of toroidal compactifications of locally symmetric varieties (such as Shimura varieties) with coefficients in the canonical and subcanonical extensions of automorphic vector bundles, and give explicit conditions for them to vanish in certain degrees. We also provide algorithms for determining all such degrees in practice.
